Gus Greensmith believes after Rally Mexico last weekend that: “he still has a lot to learn” following his ninth-place finish on the event.

Greensmith returned to the FIA World Rally Championship for the first time since his crash on Rallye Monte Carlo and the young Brit admitted he just couldn’t find a solid rhythm last weekend.

He said on his tough Rally Mexico: “It’s not been the weekend we wanted. Going into the rally we felt really good, but I just haven’t had the feeling and made too many mistakes. I would drive one good kilometre, and then one bad kilometre, and that time just adds up.”

“But things were getting better and I really started to enjoy myself this afternoon (Saturday). I’ve still got lots to learn, but we’ll get there – we’ve just got to keep at it.”

As well as openly admitting to struggling on the gravel event, the young Brit also had to deal with a technical issue early on Saturday that dropped him nearly ten minutes in lost time.

He did however go on to recover from twelfth back up to ninth by the end of the event.  

The next scheduled round of the 2020 FIA World Rally Championship is Rally Portugal between May 21-14.
